Bad Google Download URLs
Under "Euclid's Elements," the URLs for DL'ing various PDF versions from Google deliver the user to Google's page for purchasing related paperback books.
With a bit of creative copy/edit work, the correct URLs can be composed and the desired PDFs obtained, suggesting that the uploader simply used the wrong address.
In any case, the URL's for downloading the these PDFs should be corrected. The number and location of affected URLs is unkown.
At details page: http://www.archive.org/details/euclidselements00unkngoog
the incorrect URL: http://books.google.com/books?id=U0wAL7CRlzgC&
should be changed to: http://www.archive.org/download/euclidselements00unkngoog/euclidselements00unkngoog.pdf
The correct URL can be obtained by copy/pasting the EPUB, Kindle or DjVu link to the browser's address box and changing the file extension (.epub, .mobi or .djvu) to .pdf. Press the Enter/Return key to begin the download.
